Two midfielders omitted as Everton submit 25-man Premier League squad

One surprise and one not so much as Everton name their squad for the remainder of the 2021-22 season

Following the conclusion of the January transfer window, teams have completed submissions of their 25-man squads for the remainder of the 2021-22 Premier League season.

Everton’s squad list is mostly as expected with the five new signings — Vitaliy Mykolenko, Nathan Patterson, Anwar El Ghazi, Donny van de Beek and Dele Alli — added to the roster and Lucas Digne and James Rodriguez off after their departure leaving them with 26 players after registering 24 at the end of the summer window.

13 of the squad are considered home-grown players, while youngsters Anthony Gordon, Jarrad Branthwaite and Patterson have not been named in this list as they are Under 21 and as such any on that supplementary list can play a senior game without special dispensation.

With the Blues needing to reduce that number by one, they had some choices to make. Tom Davies recently underwent surgery and was expected to miss a couple of months, but has been completely omitted from this list which likely means he’s out long term and was unlikely to play again this season.

While the club haven’t named him overtly, Gylfi Sigurdsson remains suspended by the club while a criminal investigation continues around some off-the-field activity that the player has been linked with, and his name is not on the squad list which means even if he were to be cleared of all accusations, he would not be eligible to play for the Blues this season.
